One Of Our Dinasaurs Is Missing didn't quite enjoy the heights of success it was anticipated to by Disney. Its a shame as this is actually an enjoyable, fun comedy with a cast of stars that includes Peter Unistov, Helen Hayes, Derek Nimmo and Joan Sims, who was more famous for her appearances in the classic Carry On film series. A top secret formula is hidden by aristocrat Derek Nimmo inside the skeleton of a dinasaur at the natural History Museum in London. Peter Unistov is mildly amusing as a Chinese agent where as Helen Hayes and Joan Sims are leaders of a gang of unlikeley nannies that even Mary Poppins wouldn't join! Livening things up is a silly, though amusing car chase, lots of kung fu fighting and some flamboyantly over-the-top acting makes this an overly good and entertaining film thats defintley worth a look.

When do we get this in a region 1 DVD? So many other movies have come out on DVD that are out on VHS. Has anyone else been waiting for this movie?

This is a rare Disney film to find in any digital format and after watching, it's fairly easy to see why. Although it is funny at times, overall it just seems a little forced. I think Helen Hayes and her band of nannies are the most entertaining. The actors playing Asians are hard to watch with so much makeup caked on their faces.

One of the best things about this is the pristine quality of the picture and sound, probably due to the fact that the film has rarely been handled and locked up tight in storage.

On last viewing I noticed how one of the many running gags is the send-up of Nanny lore and wisdom. ("Nanny knows best - ring a bell?" Hnup Wan reminds Lord Southmere.) The script is excellent, and great British character actors fill minor roles (the home secretary! the detective team! the museum director!). Even Joan (Miss Marple) Hickson has a tiny non-speaking role. Main flaws are the cardboard and far too sunny Soho, and the casting of occidentals as Chinese with caricature accents and ridiculous eye make up. But somehow Peter Ustinov and Bernard Bresslaw (as Hnup Wan and his looming henchman) are essential. Enjoy!

Not the best film in the world, but certainly not the worst... unless you happen to be Asian. Not sure why every Asian character had to be cast by a Caucasian in makeup, but that's what they did. Maybe so Peter Ustinov wouldn't stand out so horribly in his own shady makeup. I'd like to say it's a kind of fun film, but in all honesty shortly after I rented this film I let it play while I did some odds and ends around the house, checking in periodically. So as background noise it was delightful, but as something to sit and watch all the way through it might be asking a bit much. I like Robert Stevenson's other films; The Love Bug, Blackbeard's Ghost among a few others but this one is one dinosaur that might be better served if it stayed missing.

'One of our Dinosaurs is Missing' was a hard movie to find, but I found it on Amazon! It was a bit pricy but since there were no others to be found, I got it. You will enjoy it if you enjoy other Disney Classics.

I rented this movie because I'm a fan of Walt Disney and his earlier movies. However, this movie did show the "sign of the times" with Caucasian actor(s) portraying as Chinese spies speaking their version of a Chinese accent. If you can over look this, it can be a comical movie.

However, my main gripe is the playback quality. Over half way through the movie, the digital quality became poor during a few scenes lasting less than 5 minutes. But none the less, when you purchase a movie to watch you hope that there aren't any issues with playback.
